Thanks to yz250dude getting rid of some parts i now have these to rock on my bike. I thought they were straight pipes but a peer inside reveals some baffling. Not much but they are def quieter than just a steel tube.



They have a wonderful ducati sound








please excuse the spaghetti wiring near the neck. Its my spot light wiring i need to finish and clean up one i get it all sorted out.

I have a video i took with my blackberry if you would like to see it. Video quality is the usual camera phone. Sound quality blows too, i'll see what i can do this next week.



I would like to find a good cheap bike camera. i've seen a few online and put some thought into one i saw at my honda dealer. i can't remember what it was but it was like an i-go or i something. Took two triple A batteries and looked like a full size digital camera.



I'd rather have something to mount to my helmet but thats not a real necessity. I'll try to throw up a link to youtube in a little while.



I also found out you can reuse the OEM bracket but only with one bolt. But its not like those are 20 pounds a piece.

Those pipes sound great. And if you are looking for a helmet cam, looking into the Hero helmet camera. It is marked more towards snowboarding or wake boarding, but you can get a helmet attachment, and I have seen people use them on bikes. And the picture quality isn't that bad either.

Thanks, I'll try to get a ride with it later this week so you can hear under a light and heavy throttle.

Hey I tried to post a replay but don't think it worked. I have the same pipes. They are called turn out pipes and they do sound good! Only thing is I can't get mine to fit for some reason. They are suppose to fit 1 3/4 and 1 1/2 inch pipes. Can u post a pic of the connection to the Hbox or a video showing me plz. Thank you. Also have you rejeted your carbs yet?

Just curious too know if those can be mounted as a turn-down instead of turn out style pipe?

Who's the manufacturer and what did they cost?
